Jan. 1 - Coney Island - Brooklyn, NY, USA

Rikayo Horimizu, 38 years old, originally from Japan living in Brooklyn jumped into the sub freezing waters of the Atlantic Ocean for the 3rd time during the annual Coney Island Polar Bear club swim on the first day of new year. Rikayo said "it is fun and exciting to jump into the ocean, you totally feel cleansed by the cold water."

Russell Rodin, 27 year old, from Brooklyn said "I wanted to prove something to yourself to show that your body could do it." "It is really mind over matter" he continued.
